Sweet Endeavors Honey

Welcome to Sweet Endeavors Honey!

My name is Dean Coleman and I am the owner of Sweet Endeavors Honey.  

Founded in 2016, we are a locally owned and operated apiary conveniently located right here in Ankeny, Iowa.  

We currently manage several bee hives around the area and add more hives each year.
